Positioned as an innovator and a market leader, and backed by an unsurpassed professional staff, we have been greatly successful in raising funds through equity and debt vehicles.
Our executive team combines extensive hands-on experience, in-depth theoretical knowledge and a comprehensive understanding of the major players operating within the Israeli banking system and capital markets.
Providing end-to-end financial solutions, we accompany our clients in all matters relating to financial strategy realization: deal structuring, credit rating processes, selection of appropriate source of funds and assisting in the fund raising process.
Our comprehensive expertise allows us to furnish clients with a vast scale of financing solutions, from "plain vanilla" to the most complex multi-layered models comprising senior, subordinated and mezzanine tiers.
Each case is specifically devised while viewing the particular financing requirements from the perspectives of both the client and the financial institutions we choose to work with on a given transaction.
Our synergetic capabilities combine a profound understanding of the local banking system, capital market and financial institutions while providing a valuable gateway to international banks and capital markets. We have a developed international practice and have been greatly successful in raising funds from the Israeli capital market for both local and international clients, inter alia, in advisory for bond issuances.
As our firm is not affiliated or partnered with any financial entity, we are able to benefit from maximum freedom and flexibility when choosing the right source of funds for our clients.
